Listing in the “BDTI Director Bank"

Starting in 2016, BDTI plans to operate a “Director Bank” on behalf of Corporate Participating Members, Sustaining Donors and past participants in our intensive director training programs.

Many of the past participants in our director training programs have prior board experience and/or extensive international management experience, and are bilingual. Corporations will be able conduct a focused search for potential candidates based on desired skills, experience, industry knowledge and other criteria. By receiving training, Director Bank candidates have demonstrated their dedication to serving as effective board members.

Please contact us if you are interested in having your career information listed in the BDTI Director Bank after taking one of our intensive one-day programs, and other programs as necessary. Your information will only be available to Corporate Participating Members and Sustaining Donors, and even then, only on a limited basis and in stages. (At the first level, no identifying information will be given out.)


Discounts on Public Programs and Seminars

We offer seminars and group learning programs on a variety of topics related to corporate governance. Lectures by experts and guest speakers in related fields, interactive discussion, concrete mini-cases, and Q & A sessions are common features of many of these programs.

  • Each individual member receives a 40% discount on fees for any seminar or group program.
